    Posted: 06 April 2017 at 9:08pm

The Senior Mod team provide a regular update to the membership about current going's on & plans for the future. This month, Endeavor gives the rundown of what's going on:


Staff update/Crew consultation

We are looking to evolve the way the leadership of the site works, making the crew leaders a formally recognised part of the overall site leadership & increasing their involvement in the way the site is run. 


We're eager to listen to & feed in ideas members have. This is a great opportunity for you to shape the way we do things on the site in the future, so if you haven't already please get involved in the conversation. You can find the thread here.


Battle Royale #3 


Has ended. Yep. That's it! Nothing to see here.


Identity Crisis II


The most successful topical tournament in LA history is back & proving wildly popular with the masses. We're already over the threshold of a 32 man tourney, which would be the first ever 32 man tourney at LA, with some huge names old & new putting their name down to get involved. 


ICII is a topical tourney with a difference, all entrants are assigned a Battler number, nobody knows who you are except you. Plus, you can't see what the other voters have said until the battle is finished. All votes are hidden while the battles are in progress.


The first battles have started, been voted on and even have been closed. Make sure to cast your votes and send your verse before the deadlines to ensure a smooth tourney!


Topical Twist


The Topical Twist is a play-as-you-go style league, you get points for winning battles & if you win enough you might find yourself lucky enough to sit in the play-off places when the music stops. There's been plenty of twists along the way & Cuba will plan a whole bunch more. It's a great way of getting yourself a good quality topical battle without the long-term commitment for a tourney or full on league.


Topical Twist Sign Ups

Topical Twist Table


OM King / Word Drop update


The word drop has been cancelled for now as there was hardly any participation anymore. If there's a strong desire to bring it back, we obviously will! For now we have quite some tourney's and the OM King going on. This should be enough to tickle your fancy. As for the OM King, the new challenge is up! This is the last one which will stretch over a period of two months. After this one it will become monthly again with varying difficulty. So stay tuned and do participate!


Other OM Games


As a reminder, there are other OM games that you can participate in: 


Chain Reaction II: A revised version of the first one. This where you can get or can issue challenges to other writers in the Open Mic section. 


The ILLiad: Collabo Series: A series of collective OM/stories that intertwine into a network OMs. The rules for this are in the link below. 


Spotlight Section


The Spotlight is a 'one stop shop' for all the hot topics in LA. It showcases all the biggest battles, hottest open mics, as well best discussions going on in LA.

Oh shit I just rated this as Five star when I meant to put one ...
We are all over the place with our ratings tonight people

It's the IC sickness kicking in about now
Who the fuck is who? Where is my friend? What shall I do?
Tell me I'm me! And I'll tell you you're you

Nice read up here Ender

That just had me going WTF? But then I got the connection...?


Many happy returns Sir Cuba, VC, MBE, OBE
Rumour has it you have enlisted the services of two off shore wind farms to help blow out them candles....

The timeless Cuba
Mr Spock of the drops
Logical manoeuvres
He'd make U twist on the spot
The prodigal son!
He left once
And we missed him a lot
Ya back now cunt
but I wish you'd piss off

Love ya really, HB Mate

No worries, Cuba. My time is pretty limited anyway. I'm just on here procrastinating on some work at home but both kids are with me. Stalin, my man! Great to see you around. I'll try to check out some of the battles and verses over the next day or two. I haven't written in a while, but I've had longer stretches. I recently made a beat which I will post soon, Those are even rarer!
